About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn, grow, develop, have fun!

ABOUT ME

Welcome to my page.

For my most recent profile see http://www.bewelcome.org/members/Shanna

What can I say about me? Plenty of stuff. I like learning, think of myself as an insatiable sponge for information. I can be complicated but I can be simple too. For a place to sleep or be I'm easily satisfied, as long as I'm not cold and feel safe.

And home? It is wherever I am.

I like to listen and learn from people, to share experiences already made or to make new ones ourselves! I'm very adventurous and a thrill seeker.

I can type a lot more stuff, but in the end it's the impression in real life that counts, not some pixels.

PHILOSOPHY

I want to experience, also because, how can you judge something if you don't know how it is?

Make the most of your life!

You might get used to things after a while, or you forget that it actually may be very special. I do my best not to forget that and to really 'see' everything, so I can enjoy it to the fullest.

A good example of this:
I had a very special day in the spring of 2011. It rained all day. Not in one go, but in waves: downpour, then sunshine and again drenching rain followed by the sun's rays, so there were still a lot of people up and about. I was in Utrecht, and didn't want to go home yet, so I started walking through the city and right through the downpours, even though it was pretty cold outside. It was really funny to see all the people ducking into shops, or clutching umbrellas, some even had raincoats on! All those people had sour faces, and I just kept on walking, with a smile on my face! I was enjoying the day; the stormy wind, the drizzling rain, the shining sun. Some people were looking at me, me walking with a light step through the rain with a smile on my face and not even my hood pulled up, like I was crazy. I could see them think: "But it's RAINING! and it's COLD!", so what? You can make a miserable time of it, or you can enjoy it to the fullest, even when it's raining and you're walking straight through it!
I walked all the way home and even took a detour. When I checked my route after finally coming home I had walked 17 kilometers (10,5 miles) and I'd had the time of my life!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Doing CS stuff

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Have been surfing a lot in just Utrecht, but also in Münster and Berlin, which was great!

Besides that, I go to meetings, events, parties and host once in a blue moon...

I have been to Berlin for a month, it was ABSOLUTELY amazing! I met so many great, good, nice people, and all because of CouchSurfing!

Interests

I love Jugger(!), diving, sailing, tasting new things and comparing, horseback riding, drawing, reading, skating, gaming. Walking, hiking, listening to music or making it (though I can't really play any, but I love to learn), travelling, hitch-hiking, and being free to go where-ever I want.

So, I can just say that I like EVERYTHING, as long as I can participate (otherwise it'll only make me jealous ;) ) and won't do me permanent harm.

Music, Movies & Books

Books:
Earth's Children, The Banned and the Banished series(!), Inheritance series (Eragon), Pit Dragon series, The Vampire Diaries, Sookie Stackhouse books (True Blood), Twilight saga, The Hunger Games, Green rider, Mistborn trilogy and many more.

Music:
Basically rock, pop, dance, though it can Really depend on my mood....

Movies:
Avatar, Dragonheart, Lord of the Rings, Constantine, Ironman, X-men series, Transformers, Push, Jumper, The Land Before Time ( (the first movie) the animated drawings are really awesome!)

TV Shows:
True Blood!!!!!!!, The Vampire Diaries, House, Buffy the vampire slayer (I WISH information was that easy to find!)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Life is amazing, I have experienced a lot of amazing things. And I want to experience more!

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach:
I know quite a bit about animals and I can get along with them really well. I know something about plants too, I can give tips and tricks on taking care and growing.

If I would have been a man I would have a Very technical brain and being a women, well.... I can give tips over how to fix things, think of solutions for problems, pack your fridge or freezer so everything fits even though it seemed really, really impossible! Good at reading maps etc (I'm not bragging! just listing facts)

I can draw fairly well, and shading is a speciality of me. I used to draw fantasy, but now I'm a bit stuck, loss for inspiration. If you have ideas, or if you don't mind to sit still for a while, I would be happy.

Learn:
I'd like to learn graffiti painting. I also want to learn Krav Maga or any other self-defense (would really come in handy with travelling). I'd love to learn archery/ sword-fighting (that would be really helpful for Jugger!) .
I like to learn anything, not just what's mentioned above!

Share:
Anything; knowledge, experiences, fun. My traveling stories, people knowledge, a listening ear...
